Pulling from a Melinda Gates interview with Vogue (via Geeksugar), being married to Bill, who loves the power of software, isn't without its limitations:
There are very few things that are on the banned list in our household. But iPods and iPhones are two things we don't get for our kids [...] Every now and then I look at my friends and say 'Ooh, I wouldn't mind having that iPhone'
Gizmodo imagines all sorts of iPhones secretly hidden beneath the mattresses at Casa Gates, but we imagine some fancy Minority Report-like future security that just scans people for Apple-tech coming and going. And, hey, seriously, who can blame Gates? Can we really see Steve Jobs giving his kids Zunes... or Xbox's?
